Must-have for lace knitting
on 15 October 2013
This book is the perfect introduction and reference manual for Shetland lace knitting, gathering together the major Shetland-style lace knitting stitches in one place. It is well-written and easy to understand, with patterns both charted and written. It gives instructions on how to construct your own lace shawls and scarves, and gives enough information to enable you to understand more advanced charts. I started in reverse with difficult books like Gladys Amedro's, and wish I had started with this one.
The projects at the end of the book are just to get you started and show you how to use the stitches, so I don't believe they detract from the quality of the book.
Definitely worth buying if you want to try your hand at lace knitting, or expand your range.
